Learning Acem Meditation at the International Young Retreat at Lundsholm is an immersive experience, that gives you a good starting point for exploring the technique, and establishing a meditation habit after the retreat.

Personal instruction combined with group discussions and individual guidance ensure that you get a good start. Furthermore, morning yoga, plenty of social interaction and evening seminars give you the full retreat experience, and you also get to know more experienced meditators from many countries. 

You can check in from 15:00 on the first day.

As a participant at the beginner's course on the retreat, for the first half of the retreat, you partly follow a different program than the rest of the retreat. From Thursday, you follow the same program as the rest of the retreat.

Beginner's course

On the first day of the retreat, you are introduced to the technique and receive personal instruction. During the next couple of days, you gain your first experiences with meditating, both on your own (in your room) and during group meditations, and you learn basic principles of the technique. Gradually, you can meditate longer.

Evening seminars

Evening seminars explore the psychology of meditation and help you to enhance your meditative practice.


Daily sessions of basic Acem Yoga have a refreshing effect and facilitate the practice of long meditations.

Social interaction

The activities of the retreat will enable rich and varied social interactions in an international environment.
